Roger Russell Wehrli (November 26, 1947-) (CB) enjoyed a unique career in football as he was born in Missouri, played for the University of Missouri and then played for the St. Louis Cardinals for his entire pro football career. Roger lettered in three sports in high school and helped his high school track team win a state title in 1965. With the Mizzou Tigers, was a two-time All-Big 8 player and was an All-American and the Big 8 Defensive Player of the Year in his senior season. The St. Louis Cardinals took Wehrli with the 19th overall pick of the 1969 NFL Draft out of Mizzou where he intercepted ten passes, including seven in his senior year. “Roger the Dodger”, as he was known for his incredible speed, agility and evasiveness, was utilized in college as a cornerback, punt returner and kick returner, three roles he played in the pros though he primarily played as a defensive back. Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach coined the phrase “shutdown corner” due to Roger Wehrli claiming, “There wasn’t a better cornerback I played against.” And that “you had to be aware of him all the time.” Wehrli played 14 years in St. Louis with the Big Red helping them reach the 1974 and 1975 playoffs. He was a seven-time All-NFC selection, a five-time NFL All-Pro First Team choice and appeared in seven NFL Pro Bowls. Roger Wehrli ended his career after the 1982 season having intercepted 40 passes for 309 return yards and two touchdowns. He recovered 22 fumbles for 63 yards, returned 42 punts for 310 yards and caught five kickoffs for 18 yards. He scored a total of 19 points on three all-purpose touchdowns and kicked one extra point. Roger Wehrli was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2003 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007.
